Report: FBI Probe of Manafort Centers on ‘Suspicious Wire Transfers’

The FBI probe of former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort is centered on “suspicious wire transfers” by offshore companies linked to Manafort, BuzzFeed News reports. The money transfers reportedly totaled more than $3 million in 2012 and 2013, and first drew scrutiny at the time as federal investigators sought to determine whether Manafort’s work for a pro-Russian party in Ukraine was illegal. The report comes as CNN and other outlets report that special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe will reveal its first indictment as soon as Monday as part of its investigation into Russian election meddling. Manafort has denied allegations of wrongdoing.
